    Fifa rotten to the core?

    Civil war appears to have broken out in Fifa, a pretty unedifying spectacle. Whole organisation seems totally corrupt. Perhaps we should follow Australia in claiming our expenses back for the last hopeless and futile bid to hold the competition?

    Apparently, Carlo Ancelotti’s mother never warned him that if he pulled a funny face and the wind blew, it would stay that way. Ancelotti pulled the same expression of futile, emotionless pondering for 94 miserable minutes as Chelsea, yet again, faultered in Europe. Much had been made of...
